Assistant Manager

£25k per annum

Do you spend all day dreaming about mojitos and martinis? Are you kept up at night wondering what goes into making the perfect daiquiri?

We’re looking for someone who lives and breathes the glamorous world of cocktails to join our award-winning Bar One team as assistant manager.

Excellent flavours and unexpected combinations are the name of the game at Bar One, without any snobbery or exclusionism. At Bar One – found in the heart of Inverness, near the train station – we truly believe that there’s a perfect cocktail for everyone.

The successful applicant will support the general manager in the day to day running of the busy bar. We’re looking for a people person; someone who gets on well with a team but isn’t afraid to take charge, and lives to provide great customer service.

Our ideal candidate will…

  • Have experience running shifts in a busy, sometimes high-pressure environment
  • Be a bartending and table waiting whiz kid, with an exceptional eye for detail and stellar customer service
  • Promote high standards throughout the business
  • Be passionate for quality, innovation, value for money, people and communication
  • Be career-focused with an eye always firmly on progression.


Cru Holdings has been leading the charge in exceptional hospitality experiences since 2009. We continue to invest and innovate in our venues and our people – even during the recent pandemic – to ensure every customer has an unforgettable visit.

With six incredible venues across the Highlands and over 100 staff throughout the region, we’re looking for the right person to join our team. We need people with the personality, ambition, and commitment to allow us to continue to develop and grow our business.

We recently became an accreted Living Wage Employer, thanks to our commitment to fair pay and great working conditions. Positions with Cru Holdings don’t come up very often, so what are you waiting for?

Work hard, play hard

We love to celebrate our team’s efforts and achievements. We offer quarterly thank-you bonuses, events, and a swanky black tie staff awards do every year. It’s important to us that each and every one of our hard-working team feels valued and respected.

We want to turn the world of hospitality on its head. Work-life balance, mental health support, learning and qualification opportunities, on-the-job mentoring… they’re all a core part of what we do.

What’s in it for Cru?

Interested? We need all applicants to have…

  • A minimum of two years’ experience in a similar (or higher) role.
  • The right to work in the UK.
  • Great work ethic and the ability to excel as part of a team.
